Steel Welded Frame With Rivets for Iron Man Blueprints

Posted on August 12, 2020 by Bethany Hughes


Art and design come together to create this stunning custom welded steel frame for Iron Man blueprints

We were very excited when these blueprints from the first Iron Man movie came through our studios, and grateful to have the opportunity to design a custom welded steel frame for this one of a kind piece.

The image itself, which shows the making of the original production, is hand drawn by a master cartographer on canvas then artificially hand aged. The work came to us revealing the skillful costume design for Iron Man where all angles of the iconic armor were captured digitally, rendered and recreated by professional 3D image recreation specialists. So much of cinema history went into the making of this piece, and we were thrilled to create a custom welded metal frame to accent the presence of this work.


Artistic details added to these unique Iron Man blueprints:
Custom Rivets and Distressed Welded Metal Picture Frame gives this artwork the best quality craftmanship and conservation

All of our varieties of welded steel, metal, bronze, and our collection of unique and highest quality archival frames can be custom tailored exactly to your preferences. We created custom rivets for this Iron Man piece to add dimension and a craftsmanship of framing that complements the industrial story of this piece.

The honor of pairing a one-of-a-kind artwork with equally unique craftsmanship and conservation is what we love most about custom framing projects. Such as with this hand-embellished limited silkscreen by Puerto Rican artist Alexis Diaz, now beautifully offset within a custom welded shadowbox frame.

We floated the artwork on museum matboard using archival rice paste and Japanese paper mounting techniques. Our framing experts work one on one with artists and clients to offer the best framing solutions to present and protect your artwork as the focal point of any collection.

The added touch of riveted steel moldings gives the outermost layer of this welded frame impeccable detail and an industrial aesthetic. This complements the pointillism effect of Alexis Diaz’s artistry, who often transforms public spaces with large scale murals and eye-catching designs in this signature style.

A final layer of museum glass gives 99% UV protection and stunning clarity, to extend the longevity of this artwork and protect colors from fading for years to come.
